This may be our most globe-trotting and eclectic pack yet; six wines from six different countries. Millennia ago Greece was an epicentre of wine production and innovation, and the industry is finally re-awakening with wines like the perfumed and fresh White Dot blend. Another white transports us to Australia where the Riesling grape was planted in the 1830s. Tense, racy and bone dry, try our thriller with fish and citrus salsa. August demands even more Rosé and we have one of the prettiest yet. Reimer Vineyards is a new B.C. wine estate that farms an award-winning Pinot Noir vineyard. Luckily, a section of the fruit has been saved for this flavourful, stylish pink. The clear, bell-shaped bottle with glass stopper will look stunning on your garden dining table. And have you ever tried a wine from Macedonia? Cleaved from Yugoslavia in 1992, this small Baltic nation was named for the original Macedon, Alexander the Great, who surely would have appreciated the tasty Pinot Noir I have included. Emilia Romagna, like Tuscany, cultivates the Sangiovese grape, and our Prugneto is made from the distinctive, high-quality ‘grosso’ clone. Ripe and Juicy, Nespoli punches well above its weight, just as the minimalist El Guia from Rioja does. I hope you enjoy these six varied wines that will help to celebrate another month of glorious summer.
